Iatrogenic coarctation caused by branched thoracic endovascular aortic repair treated with Palmaz XL stent and triple kissing balloon technique
We have described a technique to treat iatrogenic coarctation caused by a branched thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) procedure with a Palmaz XL stent (Palmaz Genesis; Cordis Corp, a Cardinal Health Company, Milpitas, Calif) and triple kissing balloons. A 42-year-old woman with Marfan syndrome had presented with aneurysmatic dilatation of the aortic arch 10 years after open aortic arch repair. After successful branched TEVAR, a significant coarctation just short of the left common carotid artery was noted with significant pressure gradient between the ascending and descending aorta. Branched TEVAR in previous open aortic arch replacement can result in iatrogenic coarctation that can be successfully treated using a Palmaz XL stent and triple kissing balloons.
